She did it. She came to Vancouver. She showed Vancouver what it was like to party like it’s 1999. She sang songs from her latest album. She made everyone remember exactly why he or she loves her. She made everyone remember why they love every single person they have standing next to them, when the times get tough.
Robyn. The girl from 1997 who release an album in the US with different album covers. I personally remember the gold and red cover art. I was 12 years old.
The reason I am writing this way is simply due to the gin. And the absolute love that I have developed for the artist that is Robyn.
Love the song. Love the video. Her videos are always so simple, yet creative and beautifully shot. This video focuses on love scenes between a woman and her man, then later that woman with two other women (and no man). All this while intermittently cutting back to Robyn, who has colored fluid pumping around her body by way of her water jacket.
Robyn has been engaged to her Olof Inger, a mixed martial artist & artist since 2008, and has been with him since 2002. Perhaps she dedicates this song to him? I really like the lyrics as their very relate-able. The song addresses the insecurities one can have in a relationship, simply based on what others may have done in the past, but then letting all of that go and loving the person as if nothing bad has ever happened.
Indestructible is the first an only single from her third album in the series, Body Talk Part 3, which is coming out November 29th.
YES YES YES! The anticipation for this album couldn’t be higher. After Pt. 1 and Pt. 2 did not disappoint, I am sure that Pt. 3 will be amaze balls. Today, Robyn released on her website an official release of the artwork for the album as well as the official track list. I wrote a post a bit ago with some details about the album saying that Pt. 3 would contain songs from both Pt. 1 and 2 as well as some new material.
This is all confirmed now!
We’ve been blessed with another amazing gift from Swedish pop goddess, Robyn. The singer just released the single edit of her new single “Indestructible” and it’s… FANTASTIC. If you loved the acoustic version found on “Body Talk, Pt. 2″, then you’re going to love the new treatment. The new version is the lead single from the third and final installment of her “Body Talk” album series.
Just like the makeover she did with “Hang With Me”, Robyn swapped the orchestral backing acoustics of “Indestructible”, with mid-tempo electro-pop beats. The result is another danceable, remix-ready track ready to invade the clubs. Even with the reworking, the song’s message about the downside of needing someone is still in tact. Check out the track below. Robyn also included a hot dance remix by The Krays on her Soundcloud account.
Robyn is set to release Pt. 3 of her Body Talk album series on November 29th and I couldn’t be more excited. This trilogy of albums have redefined Robyn and pop music as a whole. Digital Spy is reporting this morning that the lead single off Pt. 3 will be a “pulsating full-power version” of Pt. 2′s acoustic (and very beautiful) Indestructible. AMAZE BALLS!
If you remember, Pt. 1 gave us the acoustic version of Hang With Me and Pt. 2 brought us the up tempo version. This time around, Robyn is bringing us 5 songs from Pt. 1, 5 songs from Pt. 2 and 5 BRAND NEW TRACKS for Pt. 3. Wow. I cannot wait.
Last year Lady Gaga performed “Bad Romance” for the Upper East Siders of “Gossip Girl“, this year another hot solo singer is dropping by. Site favorite, Robyn, is making a surprise visit for Blair Waldorf’s upcoming birthday bash. Lucky girl. How do I get Robyn to show up at my next birthday celebration?
The Swedish superstar tweeted a photo from set yesterday. Hopefully her performance on the hit show will be what she needs to break into the US mainstream market. A huge favorite amongst the gays and hipsters, Robyn is nowhere near the sensation she is in her native Sweden. C’mon America, show her some love. At the very least, maybe this guest spot will promote her from commercial break segue act to full-fledged performer at next year’s MTV Video Music Awards. Many of Robyn’s fans took to the web to express their disappointment that her “Dancing On My Own” performance was disrupted for a Verizon commercial.
The 2010 MTV Music Video Awards are officially in the history books. What will the footnote be for this year’s telecast… zzzzzzzzz snoozefest. . Seriously, I found myself fast-forwarding through a lot of it this year. Perhaps because, there wasn’t that one big water cooler moment, everyone would be talking about the next day, or maybe because host Chelsea Handler failed to make me laugh or was it the lackluster performances. Whatever it was, it just didn’t live up to the hype. Maybe I’m being a little harsh due to the fact I high expectations for the show. Regardless of the negative nelly overall opinion, there were a few memorable moments worth mentioning. As a side note, can you spot SYTYCD alums Mark Kanemura and Neil Haskell in the picture above?
While most people watch the MTV Video Music Awards for out-of-this-world performances or insane WTF moments, there are plenty who tune in just to see what the celebrities are wearing. Especially whenever Lady Gaga is present, you know you’ll be in for a visual feast. It seemed whenever The Fame Monster took home an award, she was wearing another unforgettable outfit.
When she won the award for “Best Pop Video“, she wore a voluminous black Giorgio Armani dress. To accept “Best Video of The Year“, she wore a “meat dress” by designer Franc Fernandez. The meat was treated and cleaned and no blood was dripping. But more importantly, did it smell? For her grand entrance on the white carpet, Gaga wore Alexander McQueen head to toe to pay homage to her friend.
Now that you have all three looks side-by-side, which one did she rock the best? Personally, I thought she looked amazing in the McQueen ensemble. Vote below. Be sure to read the rest of this post to vote in other fashion battles from last night’s VMAs.
